Sometimes we over-complicate healthy living. Today, author, coach, and nutrition & fitness expert Ben Greenfield, brings insights on how to improve our health based on ancient wisdom. While Ben is known as a “biohacker,” who uses technology and science for peak performance and health, he also has a profound understanding of simple ways that we can mimic the health practices of our ancestors for optimal health.

Ben discusses the benefits of grounding, catching sunlight, and cold exposure, for example, that we can incorporate into everyday health habits, wherever we are today. He shows us how to use modern-day technology to benefit our physical and mental health in this post-industrial world. He shares his own personal hacks that he uses to mitigate exposure to radiation when traveling, not to mention his biggest “dial mover” when it comes to his own health and fitness. In the end, he points us to the ultimate combination of health and life span for the most fulfillment and joy.

Ananda More was skeptical about homeopathy until she fell ill during a trip to India. She took the two little "sugar pills" figuring she had nothing to lose. Now, Ananda is a homeopath herself and the filmmaker behind the movie "Magic Pills: Promise or Placebo?" In today's conversation, she covers the science behind and the benefits of homeopathy, the ancient system of healing. 

Ananda explains how homeopathy follows the principle of "like cures like" and how surprisingly effective its micro doses of natural substances can be in helping the body heal. She points to recent scientific developments that demonstrate its positive track record, and helps us understand why the pharmaceutical industry is threatened by the same.

This episode is ideal for those who are brand new to homeopathy, for the skeptics, and for those who are already choosing homeopathic remedies and are eager to see the widespread use of this ancient healing system.

For decades, we’ve been told to protect ourselves with sunscreen from the sun’s harmful rays or risk getting skin cancer. However, melanoma has increased, in tandem with the use of sunscreen. What’s going on? Today, clinical scientist and hormone expert Dr. Elizabeth Plourde weighs in on the sunscreen debate and discusses why sunscreen may be doing more harm than good. Elizabeth has done extensive research on the chemicals in sunscreen and gives us clarity about how they are impacting coral, marine life, and our own. She explains how the ingredients mess with our hormone health. She gives us the keys to a diet that works as a kind of “solar protector,” and sheds light on the role that electro-magnetic frequencies play in making us more vulnerable to the toxins in sunscreen. She also gives us insights as to why the medical community is not making this information more widely known. In sum, Elizabeth opens our eyes to the scope of the problem emanating from our use of sunscreen and what we can to curtail its detrimental impact.

Chances are, your great-great-grandmother didn’t obsess over what she ate. She didn’t count calories, measure out carbs, or worry about the fat content of what was on her dinner plate. And chances are, she was healthier than you and me!

Nutrition doesn’t have to be as complicated as we've made it out to be. But if it’s so simple, where did we go wrong? Filmmaker Brian Sanders, of the documentary "Food Lies," exposes the food lies that have added to our confusion and wrecked our health. In today's conversation, he suggests we ditch dietary dogma and return to ancestral wisdom.

Brian covers how we've lost touch with our own instincts when it comes to eating, what's behind food fads that appear "healthy" at first blush, why meat has been deemed "unhealthy," and why it's critical for this generation to turn things around.
